Suddenly the peaceful scene was interrupted by shouts from another boat that had turned and was heading right into us. "Watch out!", two men yelled excitedly. "We've lost control of our boat! Grab the tiller, John!" Dad yelled to me. "Pull it toward you when I give the signal." "All right, Dad," I responded. Dad grabbed the sail and as he adjusted it, he yelled at me, "Now, John!

"Watch out!" two men yelled excitedly. "We've lost control of our boat!"
"Grab the tiller, John!" Dad yelled to me. "Pull it toward you when I give the signal.
"All right, Dad," I responded.
Dad grabbed the sail and as he adjusted it he yelled at me, "Now, John. Pull back."
I did what he said not a moment too soon. Whew! What a narrow escape. The other boat passed within twenty-two inches of ours.

When proofreading writing, it is helpful to read the passage aloud and pay attention to your inflection. Many times your voice will hesitate where there should be a comma, or pause where there should be a period. All proper nouns should be capitalized. Proper nouns are the specific names of people and places. One proper noun in this passage that people frequently have trouble with is dad. When dad is used as the father's name, it is capitalized. However, when it is used as a general title it is not capitalized. An example would be "my dad".

The use of repetition creates a strong link in the listeners minds between Clark Jefferson and negative things.
Solution 1
D. The use of repetition creates a strong link in the listeners minds between Clark Jefferson and negative things.

The repetition here is Clark Jefferson. The speaker starts every sentence with Clark Jefferson to solidify in the audience's head who the person is talking about. Every statement is a negative statement about Clark Jefferson. This is so that every time you hear his name it is associated with something negative. This is in turn will most likely influence your vote away from Clark Jefferson and towards the speaker. 
Solution 2

D. The use of repetition creates a strong link in the listeners minds between Clark Jefferson and negative things. (apex)

Question
Read the sentence. If the river exceeds its banks, it will flood the town. What does exceed mean? stay within the range of go past the limits of are held back by do not stand out from
Solution 1

Answer:

go past the limits of

Explanation:

The verb "to exceed" has two meanings: to be greater or superior in number or size than something else, or to go past or beyond the limits of something. The definition that best completes the sentence is the second one because if we were to replace "exceed" with "go past the limits of", the sentence would still make sense: If the river goes past the limits of its banks, it will flood the town.

Solution 2
In this sentence it means "go past the limits".
